This neighborhood is defined by its strong residential community with a large emphasis on its history and intellect. Located between the Upper West Side and Harlem, Morningside Heights retains its energetic charm.

College students and young adults are often seen around the streets, thanks to the presence and expansion of Columbia University, Barnard College and Teachers College.
